Wouldn't Miss an Episode!
Commentary Magazine is fast becoming my favorite pod, and I'm a voracious listener to a fair number. John, Abe, Noah and most recent addition to its hosts, Sohrab, dispense news and independently minded opinion. It's refreshing that no one holds a stubborn ideological death-grip, so thoughts can and do evolve. A side feature that captures me especially is John's vocabulary, sending me to a dictionary every so often. Pleasurable, informative stuff. And the musical intro -- written by no less than the great Mel Brooks -- sets each podcast's wryly funny-slash-woeful stage.

One of the finest shows out there
From the episode length, to the depth and wit of the conversations, to the charisma of the hosts, everything about this show really hits the spot for me. Although I'm a liberal, it's my favorite political discussion podcast, and every episode release brightens my day.
A fun pastime around this podcast would be a drinking game where you take a shot every time John mentions the H.L. Mencken quote about the common people getting it good and hard, and every time Sohrab mentions being "Pollyanna" about something.
